This site welcomes your contributions on new subjects. When the content is in a wiki page or a blog, you can add tags to identify its subject. (For more information, see Contribute content and Add or edit a Wiki page.)Why tag content
The tags that you apply appear in the footer of the abstract and of the complete topic. They permit readers to find other content that is on the same subject. Since a single topic may be about more than one subject, it often makes sense to apply multiple tags.
